Title: WIRELESSLY CONTROLLED VEHICLE HOOD LATCH LOCK SYSTEM
Abstract:
A wirelessly-controlled vehicle hood latch lock system which can be operated by a control device. The system includes latch control module cable installed in place of the factory hood latch release cable to control the hood release action conditional upon control signals from the control device. A latch control switch sends signals to the wireless latch control module when the factory hood latch release lever is operated. The wireless latch control module allows the transfer of movement from the factory cable to the module cable only upon receipt of an enable signal. In an alternate embodiment, a latch lock motor moves a cable jam block to lock or unlock a moveable pulley and an internal pull cable output bracket. Depending upon the position of the jam block, pulling the latch release lever will either open the hood latch or the movement of the factory cable will not be transferred to the module cable.
